A Wet Ride in the Hills 0

A Wet Ride in the Hills

Saturday was a pretty miserable day here. It was also the first of the winter rides with the Triathlon Club and seeing as people in the club seem to think I’m a little mad and the sort of person who is up for anything, whatever the weather, I thought I’d better show willing. I don’t...

Mountain Biking in the Dyfi Forest

My┬ábrother┬áBrad was staying with us for the weekend and wanted to do some mountain biking. So, rather than take him out onto the waymarked trails of the nearby trail centres I thought I’d take him for a ride through the Dyfi Forest to give him a taste of the Dyfi Enduro. Saturday was a pretty...

Mountain Biking at Penmachno

On my way home from Conwy at the weekend I stopped off at Penmachno for a ride around the trails there. I hadn’t been here for over a year and had fond memories of it from last time so was looking forward to it. This was helped by the fact that it was a lovely...

ClimachX MTB Night Ride

I haven’t posted a ride report for a while or any route guides. Mainly because I had a few months off the bike after being in hospital and the rides I’ve done over the past few weeks whilst trying to get back into it have been pretty hard work and not that enjoyable. Last nights...
